New Radio Boat Talk


A talk by Eddie Hill for anyone interested in Radio Boating and Yachting

RAF Yacht Club, 1830 - 1930 on Saturday 12th January 2019

Eddie will be providing a top-level review of the features and attractions of this sport. Being a qualified Chartered Physicist, he will also welcome more in-depth questions from those of you already ‘hooked’ on this fascinating and fun sport.

Radio Controlled (RC) boating and yachting has been a feature of the RSYC activities since 2013, with GINS providing an excellent venue for this ‘Alternative Boating Sport’.

Eddie Hill has led this activity for us and is continuing to spread his enthusiasm for both the sailing experiences and for the underlying technologies, particularly the naval architecture aspects and the electronic communication and control technologies. Eddie is giving a talk on this ‘alternative boating sport’ to the RAF Yacht Club on Saturday 12 January at 18.30 to 19.30 at their Hamble Clubhouse.

Members of the RSYC will be very welcome to participate, update their knowledge of the growing sport.

 If you are interested in attending this talk, please register early via the RAFYC office - 023 8045 2208, confirming your RSYC membership.

The RAFYC's dining service will be available afterwards for anyone wishing to stay for the evening.

The Royal Southampton Yacht Club is quite unique among the Solent's Royal Yacht Clubs in being affiliated to the MYA (the UK National Association for RC yachting) and in offering members access to this internationally supported sport. The RSYC has run both sailing events and workshops, providing help to members to make ready and to tune their RC boats, which can be sailing, power or scale models.
